Yemenia – Yemen Airways has suspended all operations. The flag carrier made this short announcement:

“Since we were not given the flight permits for the flights tomorrow, Wednesday, November 8, 2017, Yemen Airlines apologizes for suspending all of their flights until further notice.”

According to The Times,

“Saudi Arabia has forced the closure of all ports, airports and borders in Yemen in response to a missile attack by Iranian-backed Houthi rebels on Riyadh Airport on Saturday night.

As a result the United Nations has stopped all aid deliveries to the country, where more than 20 million people are going hungry and 800,000 have been struck by a cholera epidemic.”
